For the past couple days, I have had Exercise ADD. Instead of doing one normal length workout (about 45-60 minutes), I have been doing 2-3 smaller workouts!
It all started on Monday when I decided to try some Zumba videos I found on Youtube. I put the cats in the bedroom, moved the music room couch, and shut my curtains. I danced my booty off for 30 minutes. It wasn't as fun as being at an actual Zumba class, but it was fun!
Then I decided to run two miles. I was slo-o-o-o-o-w thanks to the humidity and all the jumping and step touching during my Zumba workout. I stopped running when it started to rain.
Then I did this circuit five times in my carport:
Donkey Kicks- 20
Bicycle Crunches- 40
Mountain Climbers- 20
I also did 1000 jump rope rotations sprinkled throughout the circuits. For my first set of jumping rope, I did 500 rotations without stopping or messing up! That's the most I did in a row!
How's that for some Exercise ADD?
I had no idea I'd do something similar the very next day!
On Tuesday, I did Zumba videos again, but this time I did it for 45 minutes and I did it in my carport. I propped my phone up on an empty cat litter bucket and used my wireless headphones for sound. I can only imagine what my neighbors thought if they saw me... Doing my own little silent dance party in my carport!
Then Paul and I went to the gym. I ran 4 miles on the treadmill and I did something very strange while I ran...
I LISTENED TO MUSIC!!!!!!
I know, I never listen to music when I workout. But I guess the Zumba songs got me in the mood for more tunes. I listened to:
Look What You Made Me Do- Taylor Swift
Single Ladies- Beyonce
Bad Romance- Lady Gaga
Born This Way- Lady Gaga
Sugar Pie Honey Bunch- The Four Tops
Shut Up And Dance With Me- Walk the Moon
Tomorrow Is A Latter Day- The Book of Mormon
I thought maybe I would do some push ups and row after my run, but I was too tired.
Running on the treadmill in the a/c was so much easier than running outside. My paces outside this summer have been hovering around 9:00-9:30. In the a/c I was able to run in the low 8s easily. That made me feel better. I thought I was getting slower, when I guess it's just the heat and humidity that has been slowing me down.
Do you ever get exercise ADD?
